|Pillar of Hope
Climb vertical edges up to a bulge at the 2nd bolt (crux) which is quickly passed on good holds, rest if needed on the vertical face and then punch it up the overhanging finish on mostly incut jugs.
Short but fun and although rated 5.10b/c in the guidebook seems easier than the route just to the left which is rated easier.
Right side of the east face and just right of Rise and Devour.
4 bolts, chain anchors (shares the last bolt and anchors with Rise and Devour).

Fun, challenging climb with a very interesting and pumpy crux sequence. There are a couple variations to the crux and to the finish.

I found getting off of the ground on this climb to be challenging. Fun route and very sustained after you pass the bottom ledge.
